The Palace Bonovecchiati offers an upscale, boutique hotel experience in the heart of Venice, with major tourist sights, restaurants, shops, and entertainment all within an easy stroll. The hotel has an on-site spa with large hot tub and sauna, which is unusual for Venice, as well as a bar and canal-front restaurant. The 70 sleek guest rooms are outfitted in clean-lined furnishings, minibars, and flat-screen TVs. Modern art is on display throughout, and, while some of the decor borders on garish, it certainly offers an interesting juxtaposition to the trove of historic buildings in the vicinity. There's free Wi-Fi, but it can be unreliable. An average buffet breakfast is included in the rate.
